Care to take part in a world first event? Last year we were approached by the South Australian Rogaining Association to see if we could come up with a design for a cross over event, putting together the idea of a Rogaine with the use of a GPS.
And now for your geocaching and rogaining pleasure is the new event type, the GEOGAINE!
In the pleasant surrounds of Victor Harbor your task will be to find as many temporary geocaches in 3 hours on foot. Think of the June long weekend events but without the cars. There will be 16 geocaches hidden within an easy walk of the starting location which is called the HashHouse. With four caches of four difficulty levels from Very Easy to Hard to get you started, each of these initial geocaches will contain the coordinates to a further 3 geocaches of that difficulty.
Each of the sixteen small camouflaged geocaches (no micros) will have a point value from 10 to 90 points depending on the difficulty of the hide.
This event is a competition and entry is via the SA Rogaining website.
YOU DO NEED TO ENTER AND PAY ON THEIR SITE so the correct number of clue sheets, maps and food can be prepared.
Please also note that this event starts late in the afternoon.
